Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


The hotel will operate under Morgans' Hudson brand. It operates a Hudson hotel in New York and has plans to open another one next year in London. The Philadelphia hotel will have a penthouse floor with a restaurant, as well as two floors of retail space, rooms for special events and meeting facilities.

Construction of the Hudson in Philadelphia is expected to begin next year and be completed by 2016.
